Tom Holland has ruled out appearing in a remake of Back to the Future as it’s already a “perfect movie”.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming actor was recently at the centre of a viral “deepfake” video reimagining the 1985 time-travel comedy, with the clip using digital technology to map Holland’s face onto Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly and Robert Downey Jr.’s face onto Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown.

While the clip sparked a renewed interest in a revival, Holland has now insisted he’s not pursuing the idea.

“I would not be interested because that is a perfect movie,” he told Entertainment Tonight.

The British star went on to explain that playing the character would also be redundant considering his own body of work.

“When I first got Spider-Man, my goal was to be my generation’s Marty McFly,” the 23-year-old explained. “When I was on the press tour, a journalist said to me, ‘You realise you’re like Marty McFly in this movie?’ And I was like, ‘(OK!) Done.'”

The increased interest in the franchise comes ahead of the launch of Back to the Future the Musical at the Manchester Opera House in the U.K. on Thursday.

Following a 12-year journey to bring it to the stage, producers are hoping to take the musical to London’s West End and perhaps even Broadway.

Holland is currently in the post-production phases of The Devil All the Time, Cherry, and Chaos Walking, and is about to start work on Ruben Fleischer’s adaptation of video game Uncharted, in which he will play treasure hunter Nathan Drake.

Coach creative director Stuart Vevers has paid homage to late artist Richard Bernstein with his spring 2020 collection.

For the new season, Vevers and his team have partnered with the estate of Bernstein, who was the artist behind Interview magazine’s distinctive illustrated covers for almost 20 years, to use a selection of his portraits on a range of tops.

And during his spring/summer 2020 catwalk presentation as part of New York Fashion Week on Tuesday evening, models were seen wearing Bernstein’s portraits of Michael J. Fox, Barbra Streisand, and Rob Lowe – Vever’s idols growing up – on vest tops, T-shirts, jumpers, and a dress.

The show, which took place on the High Line, served as a nod to ’80s New York and celebrated “the electric attitude of the New Wave”. It featured 78 bags, each one brought out of the archives from one of the label’s 78 years and remastered.

“The brand’s heritage graphically subverted with vibrant colour, the electric attitude of New Wave – and today’s new New Wave,” said a Coach spokesperson. “The energetic pop illustrations of Richard Bernstein playfully juxtaposed with Coach’s strong, straightforward leather goods heritage. A purposeful synthesis of stripped-back and upbeat. This vivid, reimagined past, as dynamic as the city it’s made for.”

Vevers’s show opened with a model rocking a cherry red leather trench coat with flat black sandals, and the collection heavily featured leather designs, including red, brown and green trousers, pink and dark red skirts, black and green jackets and trench coats in a variety of hues.

The models also sported patterned shirts and a range of knitwear, including a yellow sleeveless vest with a martini glass pattern, and a green jumper featuring a large prawn motif.

The catwalk stars, which included Kaia Gerber, Adut Akech, and Abby Champion mostly wore flat shoes – wide colourful sandals, high-top sneakers with a trio of straps, or pointed flat pumps.

Celebrities on the front row included Coach ambassador Michael B. Jordan, Girls actress Jemima Kirke, and rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

A jacket worn by Harrison Ford as Han Solo in Star Wars is estimated to sell for over $1 million (£762,000) at an upcoming auction.

The navy jacket featuring four front pockets that Ford donned in 1980 cinema classic The Empire Strikes Back is part of 600 lots being sold off by Prop Store during a live auction on 20 September (18) at London’s BFI IMAX cinema.

The fedora hat worn by Ford’s other famous alter ego, Indiana Jones, in Raiders of the Lost Ark is also going under the hammer, with experts estimating it will fetch up to $397,000 (£300,000), while adventurer Indy’s bullwhip from The Temple of Doom is poised to fetch up to $92,000 (£70,000).

There will also be lots of other Star Wars props on offer for fans of the sci-fi franchise, including a Stormtrooper helmet from the first Star Wars film as well as a similar helmet from 2017’s The Last Jedi.

And judging by a recent auction held in Las Vegas, appetite for original Star Wars props is high, with a blaster used by Han Solo in Return of the Jedi fetching $550,000 (£419,000).

Among the other lots at the upcoming Prop Store sale is the costume worn by Johnny Depp in the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, the robe worn by Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in Fight Club, the Jumanji game board from the 1995 film, Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II, Forrest Gump’s (Tom Hanks) Bubba Gump Shrimp hat and a Wonka Bar from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.

And for movie fans whose pockets aren’t that deep, all items will be on display for the public to view from 6 September.

“Our auction on September 20 2018 will once again raise the bar, presenting some of the most iconic cinematic artefacts of our time,” Stephen Lane, chief executive of Prop Store, said in a statement.
